nSpired Natural Foods, makers of popular nut butter brands like MaraNatha and Arrowhead Mills, has issued an international recall due to Salmonella concerns. The voluntary recall for its peanut and almond butters—which includes private label jars under the Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Kroger, and Safeway brands—was made after four incidents of Salmonella were reported to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
